Hi,

Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop


    • Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.

    • Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.

    • Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly, while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.

  1. For HP Monitors

    • Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external monitor to the lowest setting.


    • Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.


    • Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.


Regards,
Rahul

SOURCE: I have a Dell INSPIRON 5100 I can't find out how

Hold down the <Fn> Key on the bottom left side of your keyboard, then press either the <Arrow Down> or <Arrow Left>. In most cases it's the <Arrow Down> key, like on my e1505. If it doesn't work, then I would look in the control panel for Dell QuickSet. It will have options for power management, including display brightness.

If all else fails, just search in the control panel for Power management or Power Options.

SOURCE: My friend's touchpad does not work

Some manufacturers made a toggle that is in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad that you tap twice to toggle the touch pad on or off.

Some touchpads will have a button at the very top of the touchpad in the middle that you press to toggle the touchpad on or off.

Some manufacturers let you toggle the touchpad between on and off with keystrokes. Normally the keystrokes is to Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the keypad. Normally the correct key that toggles the keypad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

You can always try to see what the manufacturer manual says about the keypad.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for manuals.

Run the Check Disk Utility. You've got some bad or missing system or boot files.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Try pressing [F11] repeatedly on Start-up, to access the Factory Recovery Partition.....

However, PLEASE note that you will NOT find Windows 7 drivers for your laptop if it is that old. (confirmed, HP only supports XP on that model.)

IOW....*IF* you could manage to get win7 to install on it, it is HIGHLY likely that parts of it would not work....video, network, cardbus slot, audio.....all of these would need windows 7 drivers to work properly.

you would likely be able to see a monitor image, but not be able to change the resolution much (stuck at 800x600) and the others....would be hit and miss. and if your network adapters (LAN and WLAN) did not work, I'm not sure of what use it would be to you.....

This is one of the pit-falls in Laptop/Notebook ownership. Although some models have lasted through more than one OS, they are a tiny minority.

HP has a password want to take off password


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Can you install Windows 7 on another machine and use the Product Key from another machine


Unfortunately that information you've got is not correct.
You may *not* do that. 1 license, 1 installation. The rule is quite clear. It's one copy (or one license) for each computer. There's nothing new here. This is exactly the same rule that's been in effect on every version of Windows starting at least with Windows 3.1.

How do i adjust brightness in hp g60


Here's how to adjust the screen brightness for a laptop in Windows 7:
  1. Go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options.
  2. Click on "Change plan settings" for your laptop's selected power plan (either Balanced or Power saver).
  3. Now edit your plan settings by moving the sliders next to "Adjust plan brightness" at the bottom. You'll be able to change the brightness for when your laptop is On battery power, or when it's Plugged in.
  4. Once you've adjusting the brightness settings to your liking, then click on the 'Save changes' button.
Alternatively, here is another way: From the Windows desktop, hold the fn key and press the f7 key c00776226.jpg to increase or the f8key c00776225.jpg to decrease the brightness of the display. If using the function keys does not resolve the problem and you have a Lid Actuator on your particular model, check the movement of the Lid Actuator switch to determine that it moves freely and is not stuck. NOTE: The key numbers (f7 or f8 ) may vary depending on the notebook PC; however, the images on the keys should be similiar. If you reboot the PC after using the function keys to change the LCD brightness settings, the brightness may return to the default setting on some models, which is based on the power source-battery or AC. This is not an error. The notebook is functioning as designed. If the notebook returns to the default setting after rebooting on your particular model, use the function keys to change the brightness back to the desired settings.

Go to HP's website (hp.com), click on Support & Drivers, do a search for "Photosmart C6280", click on "Photosmart C6280", download the drivers and software for Windows 7 (you'll need to know whether you've got the 32 or 64 bit version), then follow the install instructions.
